The 5 Best Martini Glasses of 2024

Vodka or gin, dirty or dry-however you like your martini, all still ends up in the same martini glass. As the world is evolving, the same goes for these glasses: they aren’t confined to the traditional V-shaped style.

Heather Perkins, the bar manager of DiAnoia’s Eatery in Pittsburgh says “There are no hard rules here.”

From rounded Nick and Nora glasses to cut crystal glasses, or vintage inspired coupes, all will do an excellent job of holding a martini.

There is a lot of glassware, and not all are created equally. Major attributes you should rate each item in includes the size, capacity, material and thickness of the rim.

Consider the feel of the glass in the hand, whether it could hold garnishes, and the overall aesthetics.
